Giving praise for the beautiful, gorgeous, morning. Especially since I have a few minutes to soak it all in and to sit quietly before the pace of the day kicks in.
Looking back at the week I'm asking myself what was the biggest accomplishment and what was a waste of time?
My biggest accomplishment...hmmmm
I've been sitting here for 15 minutes and I can't decide.
- Praying for our Elders as they prepare to review candidates - for God's eyes and discernment
-a big hug for someone I've been praying for
-Intentional - specific thank-yous to several people that worked really hard on projects
-Expressing my thanks for getting to be part of the leadership team I'm serving on
There were also projects completed and new guests secured for Crossroads - but I feel that the above are more important.
Relationships - building into lives - mentoring those younger then we are, these are what's most important to me...
On the other hand - what did I do that was a waste of time? It's only fair to honestly evaluate that as well.
-On my computer too much
-Worrying about a couple of issues...the worry didn't accomplish anything beyond saying the the Lord, "I don't trust you - let me handle this!" A total waste of valuable time - and worrying of course hurts only me!
-talking too much instead of REALLY listening
It's easier to list the negative instead of the positive.
With the Lord's help - I'll learn through the careful examination of my past my week, moving forward as I anticipate and enjoy the honor of directing the services this weekend @ Crossroads - preparing to say goodbye to one of my best friends - Deering. I've just about had all the goodbyes I can take!
What did you accomplish this week?
